center stage? >> i hadn't seen the rush limbaugh thing. that is the question. what is going on here and how doeses the president take center stage? >> what he's saying is insane. but i guess i would say that the first thing is, there's been conventional wisdom. it's such a tough issue. and the obama administration is better than the biden and bipartisan so leaders of both parties didn't do it. they chose more or less the democratic plan and now all hell is breaking loose. and it's not just the crazies, but if you take overall poll ratings for health care, people are -- the american public are not as skeptical as when the clinton health care collapsed. there's a real public concern about real issues. >> when you look at this from the approval rating and the quinnipiac poll, the president's handling of health care. here are the numbers. approvals at 39%, disapprovals at 52%, erin. that's the question. big battle lines about whether this is manufactured grassroots organizing, opposition against health care. the truth is there are people who are angry and there are people who are oppose
